Symptom #3: Itchiness

We are not usually supposed to scratch an itch. Scratching is sometimes beneficial as it can remove an irritant, but much of the time, all you are doing is scraping your skin with your nails and this can cause the skin to tear. Itchiness can be the result of a wide range of causes, and thrombophlebitis is one of them.

Itchiness is not a very specific symptom related to this condition but it can appear as a result of the underlying inflammatory condition. You should avoid the urge to scratch, to prevent the damaging of the skin that could end-up with the appearance of a skin infection.
